Is there a Civil War still going on in Iraq? Perhaps.
But there is another Civil War brewing... within the Democratic party.
From the DailyKos: Promises, Promises...
The past few days haven't been kind to Senate Democrats. They had their asses handed to them on habeas corpus, the Webb dwell time amendment became a joke, and Feingold-Reid went down in flames, with each defeat prompting an, "oh well, let's move on."
That's not the only bad news for the "progressive" blogosphere. If the left has also been following reports on Iraqi civilian casualties, they will have learned that violence in Iraq has plummeted, dropping to its lowest level in 18 months.
The "progressive" left has become so pathetic, they have to resort to outrageous, disgraceful blogging, with posts such as: Kansas cemetery ‘full’ because of Iraq war.
It is bad enough that Harry Reid can't get Republicans to vote for his legislation, but 22 Democrats recently crossed the aisle and sided with Republicans in condemning the MoveOn.org ad.
This Democratic "sectarian" disagreement is nothing new, but it is getting nastier as the Iraq war is getting better.
Update: The Levin-Reed amendment failed to pass. Yet another Democratic shortcoming... no surprise there. DailyKos once again full of woe: Where's Congress?
"The NYT's editorial page is on a quest, along with all of us, for an effective Congress"
Also no surprise.
